Any Synthetiks-related news, Davecat? (Jul 2006)

Sdtrk: ‘Kinky boots’ by Patrick Macnee & Honor Blackman

Speaking of Dolls — cos let’s face it, when am I not speaking of Dolls? — it seems that the Good People at 4woods have just released two new heads for their delicious A.I.NEO series. I approve!


Left, Sayoko; right, Chris

Both the Sayoko-chan and Chris models are just under 5’2″, weigh 66 lbs, and boast 34.24.35 as their measurements. Yum yum. Upon reflection, ‘delicious’ is too simple of an assesment…

It looks like 1st Personal Companion have come up with a new head to choose from as well..


Looks a bit like Rose Tyler, don’t you think?

This head type is called Kay. Or Tracy. I’m not entirely sure. Whatever her name is, I’m likin’ what I’m seein’, and she’s a pretty attractive collection to the other head types that 1st-PC already has available..

Also, the current fate of SynthCreations, makers of the gorgeous Mecadoll, is that they’ve undergone a couple of corporate changes, and is now My Party Doll.


She counted sitting and staring amongst her many hobbies

I’ll wait and see what manifests before I add them to the sidebar list of manufacturers, but it’s good to see they’re still afloat! More companies = more sexy silicone diversity, which is always ace.

Back to Japan, A NEW CHALLENGER APPEARS!! in the form of Honey Dolls, by Axis Japan. Hopefully not related to Haman Karn‘s Axis from Gundam, but I digress. I literally just saw these as I was writing this up, but at a cursory glance, they certainly attract. Especially the Honey3 model, pictured below. Mmm.


She seems… distracted

This company is definitely one to watch. (I’ve added these cats to the sidebar, as they have an actual finished website.) Apart from the swap-out-capable heads, the under 70 lb weight, and the tactile sensors embedded in each breast, what really gets my attention is the fact that these are the first Japanese-made Synthetiks since Chestnut co. Limited’s Rare-Borgs that feature mouths that you can open. I’m excited. Are you excited?

And finally, regarding Cruyff, makers of the Erie series of Synthetik companions: I once mentioned that the name sounds like a light and flaky pastry, but could they be possibly named after legendary Seventies-era Dutch footballer Johan Cruijff? After all, what’s another name for a love doll? That’s right… a Dutch wife

    Thanks for the news flash, Gordon! (D’oh!)

    Surprised that I’m saying this, but the Mecha/Party Doll looks the best by far! Very nice pic :O

    Thanks for the updating-ness 🙂

    I think Rose Tyler there needs a wee bit more convincing wig, and I like the Sit-N’-Stare’s face better.

    I hadn’t realized the industry had gotten so crowded. Perhaps some healthy competition will drive down the prices or cause some standards development. Wouldn’t it be nifty if limbs and heads had standardized attachments/mountings? Then a wee little company could specialize in faces, another in fine legs, etc.

    Lastly, Soyoko and Chris sound very light. Would that affect things much, when they are so childlike in weight? Or would it just make it easier to get ’em around?

    WBYeats and Lily and Eden –
    I agree, the Partydoll looks pretty yummy, but then she doesn’t look all that different from what she used to back when they were called Mecadolls. She looks a wee bit pinker, as far as I can tell..
    It goes without saying that I want a Party/Mecadoll (a Mecha Party Doll?), if only to have her made with dark hair. Apart from Tweetymel’s lass, every Mecadoll I see is a blonde! I don’t know what that says.

    Sweetie and I send a big Hallo to everyone round yours! Or a big Halo, but you can only really play that once before you get tired of it. 😉

    I think the problem with the 1st-PC lass isn’t so much the quality of the wig, but it’s kinda low on her forehead, it seems. Lovely face, though..

    Standardisation would be a really ace thing, but it probably wouldn’t be for quite a while. Unfortunately, with as many Synthetiks makers out there, things are still a bit cut-throat; in some cases worse than others..
    After-market add-ons are limited; the only ones I can think of would be the custom eyes and eyebrows by Guy Louis-XVI, but he says he’s no longer making them. Something like a company that made faces would be hard to establish, as you’d have to take into account different subtleties in skintone, different silicone formulas, etc. And something like swapping out limbs would be really difficult, as that would require recasting the whole Doll, in order to get her as seamless as can be. Again, skintones, different silicone blends, etc etc. That would be another good reason for standardisation, but like I’d said, it’s cut-throat — one company’s dolls have a years-in-the-making blend; another company has a more flesh-like blend; yet another has a more durable blend that’s less flesh-like — and each maker has patents of their formulas, and are guarding them zealously.

    And for someone like myself, 66 lbs is really really good — I think 50 – 55 is like the Holy Grail. Keep in mind, Sweetie’s 100 lbs, and I only have 25 lbs on her. There’s a fine line between making Dolls so light that they’re not as realistic, and so heavy that no-one can enjoy them as much.. especially Organik lasses. I know a couple of female Doll owners who sometimes have trouble with their Synthetiks due to their weight..

    * Important news*
    Mecadoll, run by Yves, has a very spotty record of non-delivery and not refunding money.

    Hey Keith –
    Thanks for stopping round! And double-thanks for the heads-up! I can’t believe that Mecadoll/My Party Doll is still having issues — I remember the hell Stacy went through with receiving Nico Vespa. Hopefully they’ll get their act together, as they make gorgeous Dolls, and if they’re not fulfilling orders properly, they’re gonna lose potential customers. Better safe than sorry…

    And yes, I need to get back to the Forum full-time. I plan on it before the year’s over, cos at the moment I’ve got a number of plans and projects waiting to happen…

    Give Nicky a kiss from Shi-chan and I, and thanks again! 🙂
